Fuor local charities will be the beneficiaries of this year’s annual Clonmel vintage and classic car show, back for its fourth year.

Clonmel Heartsafe, Alzheimers Society, Cystic Fibrosis and Place4U will receive donations from the proceeds of this event, held each year in Powerstown Park Racecourse.

Since it’s formation in 2010, the Club to date has raised more the €64,000 for local charities and once again this year, the organisers are determined to provide a good day out for all the family, as well as enthusiasts of vintage and classic machinery.

The event itself is primarily a static display of vintage cars, tractors, fire engines and trucks from the early 1900s to the 1970s. This year there will be a special display from the Irish Morris Minor Club of Ireland celebrating 30 years of the Club and 100 years of Morris cars along with a special display of D.K.W. cars.

The show also presents the opportunity for those attending to win their very own vintage car, a 1966 Hillman Imp in excellent roadworthy condition. The draw will take place on the day.

The static show will be preceded by a vintage run on the Saturday from Hotel Minella to Lismore. Cars will be departing at 11am approx and returning to the hotel later that day where the Club will hold a dinner dance later that evening.

All are welcome. For further information contact Michael Lavin 086 8322471 or Michael Murphy on 087 3226699
